Great Preferences and Workflow Tips for Premiere Pro

Editing in Premiere Pro has become more and more intuitive over the last couple of years since the launch of the Adobe Creative Cloud. Justin Odisho takes us through his preferences and workflow setup, which is a great way to get started. 

When opening a project to start editing you could have a smooth-running experience, but every once in a while, Premiere would give you a notice saying: "Sorry, a serious error has occurred that requires Adobe Premiere Pro to shut down. We will attempt to save your current project." This can be a frightening experience, and Adobe has added the ability to change the auto-save interval. Odisho recommends to set it to every 10 minutes but I recommend making it every 5 minutes.

Speeding up your workflow is part of enjoying what you do. If you can envision the video you want to produce, shoot the scenes and edit it together in a way that you envisioned it, it makes the process so much more rewarding. The tools we have to our disposal now are changing and Adobe has even developed new editing software to cater for the new generation of video editors.

If video editing is something you are looking at pursuing as a career, learning as much as possible from other successful video producers is a crucial part of doing so. The next step is to go out and shoot.
